FUTURE TRENDS: NEW REPUBLIC STUDIOS – The NEW PARADIGM in FILM PRODUCTION……..One Millennial. One Baby Boomer. Two totally different perspectives. Perspectives that cross not only generations – but styles, tastes, passions, interests, and impressions.
The duo offers you impressions of not just films, but of the film makers, film festivals, new trends & other special events that many of us never get a chance to see.
What goes on at high level film summits? Which film festivals are worth going to? What type of films were each one of these festivals catering to? How did they treat the film makers & screenplay writers who were invited? Did the audiences have a blast? Was a festival a real showcase for international independent films, or just a networking party to give awards to their friends? Well, now you’ll know the answers to all these questions, and much, much more.
Thank-you all for your understanding as we recover from Hurricane Harvey (yes, we are based between Austin & Houston Texas)…will have some new film festival reports posted shortly, in the meantime, check out some of the ones below you might have missed….
